well, I must say - thats a gutsy thing to do.  Upgrade a production
server to yet unreleased CVS versions of processing code.  Nice.
Actually, I was thinking of doing the same - just haven't gotten there
yet.  ;-)

If you don't need the HTML munging, you might be able to avoid the
problem by turning it off.  In 2.0b (Embperl) you can choose syntax.

Snippit from the README.v2:
syntax / EMBPERL_SYNTAX / [$ syntax $]

Used to tell Embperl which syntax to use inside a page. Embperl comes with
the following syntaxes: 

    - EmbperlHTML       # all the HTML tags that Embperl recognizes by default
    - EmbperlBlocks     # all the [ ] blocks that Embperl supports
    - Embperl           # (default; contains EmbperlHtml and EmbperlBlocks)

So in the configuration file (httpd.conf or however), enter a
'EmbperlBlocks' for the EMBPERL_SYNTAX.   (it defaults to 'Embperl')

This might work as your first email suggests that dynamic content is
fine.  If you need HTML munging, perhaps a proper value for escmode
might do trick.

Hope it works out!
